Hi everybody, how you doing, we’re here in
the center of Wimbledon in a massive studio. You can probably see it got loads of people, lots of very high tech equipment so that we can catch the moment For the server using the Chopper
Grip or the Continental Grip, depending on what you prefer to call it. Mostly
spreading my fingers a little bit as well which allow you to manipulate the raquette head a little bit more for more spin and bit more control. You know it’s the
one shot in tennis that you can control yourself, so it’s something you can continue
to improve, I think all of the time and learn new things about having a
good serve, but it could still be better. You always have to be thinking when
you’re serving, because your opponent might change their return position
depending on whether they have a single a double-handed backhand. You always have to analyze during the match what’s going on and tried to depict the right
serves for the most important moments I love serving aces, I think all the all
the players do. Very satisfying when that happens and especially in today’s game
where the courts are quite slow, heavy balls and most rallies are extremely
long. When you can serve an ace and finished the point and not to have to use too much energy is a good feeling. Don’t loose your patience, practice is the most important thing I had probably fifty thousand serves every single year during training. So
just keep going keep giving your best and hope you tune in for the next video and we can catch the moment.
Still got it. Great serve. Thank you a while ago. We did a video called jello tennis I think was the name jelly jelly tennis. Probably jelly tennis because we’re from England. Yeah, and we did it about 2,500 FPS since then technology has advanced we can now do 12,000 frames a second in full HD with the b-26 40 also jelly technologies improved we’ve managed to do multicolored rainbow jelly, ooh now this technology did exist back when we did it the first time we just couldn’t be bothered and I’m glad we didn’t do it last time cuz that took forever it. Took me a week I do like 20 of these because you have to set individual layers and each layer takes about eight hours to set Yeah, so we made a load of them because probably we’re not gonna get it every single time It’s really difficult to get the framing right with the tennis and the jelly and everything I think that’s literally the same tennis racket. We use lost. It’s still sticky from last time All right Let’s get this table out the way let’s frame up the Phantom and get some lovely shots some jelly getting cut up into little strips I’m gonna get that jelly out nicely This is the Phantom V 26:40. It’s a liquid-cooled beast that does twelve and a half thousand frames a second in full HD Okay first attempt Good luck Ready yeah ahh dammit Sake wish me luck this time going for it I’ll hit it. Yeah This is good speed I like this speed that’s pretty sweet a chunky jelly that Diced oh, that was perfect. Look at those colors there. It’s wicked. Oh, that’s so cool Like that is awesome. All those little worms So I need to be lower okay, I think looking up Alright, cuz you’re hitting it a lot slower than we yeah It’s because I think last time I had it in my hand and I was loving it Yeah, which meant I had more time, but because the jellies so big now Yeah and like more it matters more about the individual colors and the colors are so thin I’m just having to drop it out of this which Means I’m having to come up from lower down than I was before. Alright, it’s not under water so got like there to back like the jelly just so it’s a little glowy went down hits it and A pretty shoddy white background is so not shooting against the fence. You ready Daniel? Yeah, I’d really keep spotting though. Really. Yeah, it’s like He keeps just goofing. I Like splashed it in the rim, you can see the rim of the tennis racket move. I left behind some of the colors there Go for it Oh Yuson I lay in the back. Oh no I’m gonna do I Love how it goes from just being a sort of questionable looking blob. It looks like an amoeba Yeah, it’s like you’re hitting a rainbow egg And suddenly a rainbow was born a Sweet bloody fool you can see every individual color looks like it literally looks like a rainbow Has been formed out of giant wormy rain droplets. It looks like a unicorn sneeze. I Would hate to be on the bottom of that you’d see all the Stuff I’m sorry. Should I hold it down or something? No, it’s only it’s like a it’s just so we’re not looking at offense It doesn’t have to be too clean. Therefore slightly trickier shot changing our focal length, so like sort of that which Drastically shrinks the window that makes both of our jobs much harder. Yes. I’ve been struggling to hit properly with the wide Yeah Now the rest of these jellies are pretty much gonna be used to try and get it so that upon me I can get it Right in frame on the tight Missed off of it. All right you got this. Come on Oh so odd Oh damnit All right, let’s check this one out Take 48 Bit of a flaw pitch coming down. Yeah. All right. So the jury’s a bit Yeah Oh, it’s just in the racket It’s a multicolored wormy wow It’s so difficult because not only it’s like half of its down to chance Yeah Because the jelly has to be spinning at the right place to get the colours in the right area And I have to hit it exactly in the middle of the racket Exactly the right time. All right Now while Don gets another gel I flip the entire set up 180 because the Sun is now low enough where it’s perfectly backlighting these jellies and Dan’s definitely gonna get on this one aren’t you down? Oh, yeah. Yeah. Okay we go I Think it was good. I think it was good. I think I did All right, let’s take a look at it. All right, so the background is a lot darker because Yeah, it’s hard to see what’s even going on here. Shove your face right in See now. Oh, yeah, there’s a bit of the orange jell-o coming down here. He comes here. He comes Oh, Deluxe That’s absolutely luscious Here we come. Come on nail it Oh, yeah As well cool As well been wicked. I was perfectly like each jet each little eel had every color in it It’s rainbow eel Very nice work and a lot of them a lot the lower ones They all go from being long worms to curling the exact same way. It’s really weird, isn’t it? How does that happen? All I’m doing is hitting it with a racquet See it was nice the last time in it, but now is like fascinatingly nice because you can see exactly what’s going on I love the backlight. I think that’s the best decision How many more we got that was the last normal one? Who collect? Yeah, we got the last one Even though that was incredibly time-consuming and frustrating to shoot. I feel like we’ve got the cream that we wanted honestly I think the backlit shot was worth it alone. Yeah, that was just so cool Looking the way it looks sweet with the jelly see-through and everything So it was just one of those shots you look at and you just think oh, that’s nice Like I like looking at this good come to think of it that video is taking us for me About 15 hours of jelly making hitting things. I like a bad back now. I’m like, I just been stood there today Okay. Oh Now you need to sit down wait to sit down oh, well hopefully you enjoyed that lovely little revisit much slower revisit Feel free to follow us on Instagram and all that. We got a second channel and we’ll put out another video pretty damn soon Thanks for watching
Hi everybody, how you doing? We’re here in
the center of Wimbledon, in a massive studio. You can probably see it got loads of
people, lots of very high tech equipment so that we can “Catch the Moment”. When you’re hitting the backhand slice you want to make sure that your body weight is moving forward, so on to your front
leg. So, for me as a right-hander that would be playing the shot of my right
leg, so the body would be going forward. Left-hander, obviously, is the opposite and
your left foot is the one that’s coming forward. You need to sort of cut
underneath the ball, like if you almost imagine if you are
using a sword to cut through something. You want to try and keep it
like that, so your rest would be stable. The whole way through would be flat, like I
said. If your wrist breaks at any point, that’s when you start to lose
control the ball. You need to try and keep your wrist firm the whole way through it. You go in there, with tactics and a game
plan, but often you have to make adjustments during the match and make
changes when things aren’t going as well or if your opponent makes adjustments as
well and starts doing something different than what you expected and it’s important
to be unpredictable yourself. It’s not luck, when shots come off on under
pressure. That comes from a lot of hard work and preparation and that’s the
Hi everyone . Welcome to Easy Tennis. I’m Coach Emre. In this video, I’m gonna explain forehand technique in 2 parts Part 1 is about forehand used in short distances. Hold your racket in your forehand grip. It’s eastern, semi-western or western. If you don’t have any idea about forehand grips you can watch my forehand grips video. We don’t use the same swing in every part of the court I mean the swing we use when we’re close to the net is different than the swing we use when we’re behind the baseline. So when you’re close to the net and if you don’t want the ball go far You don’t need to take your racket behind you(backswing) Your racket should be synchronized with the ball. I mean as the ball goes up your racket goes up and down and down the same the ball bounces and your racket goes forward to contact the ball in front of you. Now part 2 Be in ready poasition racket head higher than the grip level For details I have a video about ready position. As the ball goes off your opponent’s strings you should decide your shot forehand, backhand whatever as soon as possible. Starting from the upper body you should turn to your right left hand waits the ball that’s for balance now my chest is facing to the right fence then the racket lag this motion is called “racket lag” my chest turns forward my wrist and my racket follows my turn like this then go to the contact point from low to high start pronation before the contact point. Contact the ball in front of you Brush the ball up and then follow through At contact my chest is facing forward at last, my chest is facing to the left fence. At contact, my racket’s handle is parallel to the ground the racket’s face is perpendicular to the ground you shouldn’t contact like this or this or this or this These are wrong. Your swing should be from low to high from low to high If your ball goes too high you might have opened your racket face at the contact to the ball. If you can’t go over the net you might have not swung from low to high This motion of forearm is called “pronation”. This motion You should start pronation before the contact point. That will create topspin. And then follow through Let the racket go after the contact point Don’t stop it don’t do this Let it go and it will stop naturally Turning your body forward and transmitting your forward momentum to the ball this will create more power but if you are out of balance I mean like this or this then you can’t do it Your spine should be upright. To recab, decide your shot as soon as possible turn to your right left hand here waits the ball for balance racket head higher than the grip level then the racket lag now my chest is facing to the right fence then my chest turns forward the butt cap of the racket pointing to the oncoming ball my wrist in the shape of “L” go to the contact point from low to high start pronation before the contact point and then follow through. Let it go and it will stop naturally. At last, my chest is facing to the left fence. That’s all for this video. In my channel, you can find all the drills you shoul do from the first day you hold your racket. Check out my playlists to do all the drills in order.

The serve is very important. It’s one
of the most important shots out there. When you break the game down, the serve is the only shot where
you aren’t reacting to your opponent. When you get into a rhythm of serving so well
and holding your own serve, that puts a lot of pressure
on your opponent’s serve because they know
that if they drop their serve once, there’s a good chance
they lose the set. A lot of people get the ball toss
a little bit too far out in front. When the ball toss is too far in front,
then you are really rushing it, and you’ll struggle
to really hit up on the ball. If anything,
it’ll be that you are collapsing, and then you’ll hit
a lot of serves in the net. So make sure the ball toss is a little bit in front of you
but not too far. And then you’ve really got the chance
of driving with your energy up instead of into the court. Once you have the ball toss
in the right place, it’s important to use your legs. When amateur players think about wanting
to serve harder to serve faster, they immediately think about swinging
at the ball more aggressively, using their elbow, shoulder and chest
to hit the ball harder, and that’s not the case. 65%, 70% of the power on the serve
is going to come from the legs. My third and final point on the serve
is really to watch the ball. It’s very easy, as the ball is up in the air,
as you hit the serve, to be pulling your head down. And if you pull your head down,
your body is collapsing and the ball is more likely
to go into the net. So it’s more important
when you’re using your legs to drive up that you keep your head up
and watch the ball as it hits the racket. When you’re serving well and you’re
getting cheap points on your serve, then it’s a great platform
for the rest of your game. If you don’t drop your serve,
you’ll be difficult to beat.

Gav: What’s the uh.. what’s the penalty for losing? Football to the head? *Trying to hold back a laugh* *Sigh* Dan: S’pose so, yeah. *Laughter* D: Ooh! D: You got it! D: Noooo! G: Here we are again then. D: Great. G: 6 years later — Hello I’m Gav. D: I’m Dan. G: A while ago Dan, I threw a ball at your head. D: Well, apparently. I’ve seen the video but I don’t remember at all. G: Did it knock the memory clean out of your head? D: I’m pretty sure my IQ points just went on the floor. G: That was filmed at 1,000fps but today we have a camera that’ll do 28,000fps. Let’s do it again. D: Maybe you’ll knock the memory back into me with this one. G: Maybe as this hits your head, you’ll go back in time 6 years. D: Yeah, I’ll forget everything since– happened then. (Wtf did you just say) *Pfft* G: We didn’t really show this in the first video but it’s not easy to get water into a football. D: Well it takes time because imagine you’re pumping a pump and air comes out and you just sort of go “tshhh, tshhh, tshhh”, G: Yeah. D: because it’s cause of– obviously water’s thick and- G:Well water’s going through a needle nose takes– takes a lot of time. D: Look. G: *throaty laugh* D: So, I shove that back in there. See, so you just have to let the air out, and then shove one of these needles in, and fill it full of water. G: You can hear it. D: It’s nearly full. You have to let it sit in the water. G: So it’s… D: Oh, that’s hefty. G: You think that’ll rattle your brain?
D: Yeah. Oh God, that hurt already! I don’t want to do this. “Rattle my brain”, hurts enough with a football full of air. Playing football, I don’t head the ball. G: ‘Cause it hurts?
D: Yeah. I’m like, “Why would I do that?” G: Well you lose brain cells.
D: Exactly, I’m not doing that, like the amount of times I’ve heard like, “get a head on it!” I’m like, “f**ks off!” G: Alright, last time you went for a sort of toothy grin. D: Yup. G: This time, I reckon a flabby face, sort of gormless look. D: Okay we’ll see what we can do. G: And If you can keep your eyes open that’s a bonus.
D: Right. G: critical focus. G: Ready?
D: Yeah. D: Ugh! Got it, yeah? D: I just relaxed, just relaxed. That’s gotta be it. D: Alright, do it again. Do it again.
G: *laughing* Oh, God! D: Wait until my eyes have been open for a few tries, okay? G: For a few tries? Well that’s gonna psych you out! D: Nah, I found my zone, I found my zone. I found it, B. I just, I just imagine that you’re shaking, like, maracas next to me. *Laughter* And I’m not gonna get hit. D: Sweaty hair. G: It is a bit hot out. D: Ugh. That’s it. G: That was it! D: I think so. G: Yea- *laughs* Look at that! *Laughs* G: Ah, it’s a clean hit on the side of the face. Oh the shockwave’s at- G: Oh your nose bone moved under your nose!
D: Ohh! G: Ugh! *Laughs* D: My eyes are like, “What’s happened here?” G: Oh now the shock hit- Your mouth like hung behind. D: Oh no. *Laughter* D: I don’t think I could-
G: You look, G: You look like-
D: Look at my face! G: You look like someone else! G: Who’s that? G: *Laughs* It’s so stupid. D: I look like I’m asleep there, I’m like really peaceful.
G: Ohh, G: Oh it was class. D: Like, the, the, the first part of it stayed there but the rest of it moved. *Laughter* D: Crazy.
G: That was class. G: I like it a lot better slower. G: It’s like bloody 30ºC (85ºF) out here, 35ºC (95ºF). D: I need to, uh… I actually take that thing off, hang on. Ahhhh~ G: Feel good? D: Yeah. D: Ah~ D: It’s like we’ve got our own pool. G: Yeah. D: Oh no. G: I mean, people spend a lot of money on pools, G: but you really just don’t need one.
D: You could just get a D: dust bin and fill it full of dirty water. G: Get a gammy old bin and fill it with hose water, G: and it’s the same.
D: Yeah and uh, and a pump. G: And a bike pump. *laughs* G: Woah. D: Yeah I lost another 2 IQ points there. G: What’re you down to now? 67? *laughs* 73. D: Give me some slack.
G: 73, alright. D: Geez! It was facinating slower. D: Yeah.
G: Like, I never thought I’d see the nose bone move under the nose. Like, I saw exactly where your nose ended and where this, the gristle and… G: cartilage, yeah.
D: It was just perfect, yeah. G: Imagine what mine would’ve been like! D: D: Yeah, it- It would still be there.
G: The end of it would’ve flown of! D: Your face would be out of frame. G: What’s interesting is that usually when we do a slow mo, it’s like “alright, here comes the ball, here comes the ball, …now you’re getting hit, … now you’re bouncing away.” With this camera, it’s like, “Alright here’s the ball, now you’re getting hit, you’re still getting hit, you’re literally still getting hit by a ball…” and it goes on forever! D: It’s true. G: It’s amazing! D: I look floppy in slow motion for ages.
G: *laughs* for ages! G: So that was 28 times slower than the first time we did it, and hopefully in 6 or so years we’ll be doing it even slower than that! G: Oh, we’ll give you enough time to rebuild the IQ. D: I’m gonna be, I’m gonna be down to like, 50. *laughs* D: Goodness sake. G: Do you think that each time you get hit, more IQ falls out? D: Yeah! Definitely, yeah. Well hopefully you enjoyed that revisit. Feel free to follow us on Twitter, give the old one a watch, it was pretty funny, Uh, we got a behind the scenes channel, and we’ve got merch. D: Sweet!
G: So, G: Whatever you want to do at this point. And we’ll hope to see you in the next video. D: See you in 7 years when we get hit again. *laughs*
Hi everybody, how you doing we’re here in
the center of Wimbledon in a massive studio. You can probably see it got loads of
people, lots of very high tech equipment so that we can “Catch the Moment”. It’s basic fundamentals that everyone will do, making sure that you have your right leg
forward, if you are a right hander and your body weight moving in the right
direction. All of the players that have good slice backhands, will do this
as well You need to sort of make sure you follow
right through the ball on impact, you know you don’t want your wrist to be
breaking too much on impact, because then you’ll lose control of the
ball. I might say to you, that the slice is a very difficult shot to
control, so you really need to make sure that your wrist is strong through
the impacts and trying to get good timing When the ball’s coming at you, you know
off a serve sometimes 135 miles an hour you have a half a second to react and you know
that’s not enough time to think. So it just comes on instinct and that’s where
all the preps is and hours of preparation that you do. You know come into
play with it and there are the times in the match where you want to play your best
tennis. And in those moments on you know sort of being in present really. That would be catching the moment for me.
